The fluid has been drained and I noticed the difference right away. I can breathe deeper and easier. It took several hours but the procedure went smoothly. The drainage site is rather tender but that will heal. I had a migraine headache, however, so that made the day a little harder. This evening I'm feeling much better and I'm finally able to stay awake for a few hours. I'm looking forward to sleeping comfortably tonight. Tomorrow morning I see my oncologist. Please pray for wisdom and strength and a plan for how to proceed next.
